Guide to Mooring Whips and Boat Retention Products
Mooring whips are flexible fiberglass poles used to secure a boat to a dock in order to avoid damage to the boat or dock. Also referred to as boat whips or dock whips, they were primarily developed to offset the effect of changing tides, boat wakes, and wind created waves. Mooring whips use tension to keep the boat at a safe distance from the dock and their flexibility permits some movement of the boat due to tidal changes. Boat whips have a variety of uses in the docking industry, but are typically used for smaller boats. Mooring whips were a huge advancement for boat docking systems and these boat whips have been a permanent fixture in the boat docking industry for over fifty years.
Mooring whips have been in use for over fifty years and are most effective for smaller boats and in relatively calm waters. Boat whips are usually made from fiberglass, which allows them to flex when needed. Mooring whips are mechanically connected at one end to the dock while the opposite end is connected to a cleat on the boat via a dock line. When a boat whip is tied to the boat cleat it causes the fiberglass pole to bend, and will keep separation between the two. Dock whips are often used in conjunction with bumpers, fenders, and marine grade lines to ensure the safety of the boat.
